    What.... The Chromecast is the most confusing? If you use any major streaming app on any platform it's just one click away. WTF

    I love the Verge but this was not the best video. The Chromecast is not confusing. And then saying that using a slow Roku interface is okay was strange. While there was a lot of info about costs associated with what you want to stream I do not feel more informed which is cheaper. Yes you said it was probably cheaper, but I don't know exactly why. Not the greatest video.

    Why don't you mention Android TV? Many apps with UI and remote with Google Assistant. Many options for 4K HDR from $79 to $300 like Xiaomi Mi Box 3 and Nvidia Shield TV?

    No mention of the FireTV or Android TV, or the game consoles or the built in TV interfaves like LG or Vizio. No mention of PSVue or DirectTV Now? This is like half of a video

    Wrong. The BEST streaming service is YouTubeTV, and the BEST streaming device is the Nvidia Shield (2017)...
